Both entities are aware of how important the concept of racehorse partnerships are to horse racing, and how they encourage more people to become involved with the sport as a whole. “We support programs whose goal it is to bring more people to the sport and introduce them to the world of horse racing. That is the concept behind our partnerships, and this relationship between the NYTB and WPT is an extension of the mission to bring new energy to the sport and more people to the game,” said Finley.
Cannizzo continued, “We work with entities that support the industry and participate in the activities that foster the continued success of Thoroughbred breeding and racing in New York State in particular, as well as at the national level.
